Great and nice movie
4 November 2000 | by (Kitchener, Canada) – See all my reviews

Mail to the Chief was a great movie, and I was not disappointed. It shows the people you can meet on the internet. It was a great uplifting movie especially if the audaience is youthful, but great for any age group. It shows the talent in Canadian movies. Dan McNaughton
